Officers earlier confirmed they will take no action against Lennon following complaints over his behaviour during the match at Ibrox.

Police Scotland received a number of complaints after the former Celtic manager celebrated his side’s first goal by apparently cupping his ears and raising a fist in the direction of the Rangers fans.
